Circular Plastics Alliance

On September 2019, more than 100 public and private partners covering the whole plastics value chain signed the declaration of the Circular Plastics Alliance, which promotes voluntary actions for a well-functioning EU market in recycled plastics. Signatures included Recovinyl's founding members: VinylPlus, the voluntary commitment for sustainable development by the European PVC industry, PRE (European recyclers association) and EUPC (European converters association).

The declaration sets a number of actions that the coalition will work on to foster the uptake of 10 million tonnes of recycled plastic in Europe by 2025.

Concrete actions include:

  • improving the design of plastic products to make them more recyclable and integrate more recycled plastics;

  • identifying untapped potential for more plastic waste collection, sorting and recycling across the EU, as well as the investment gaps;

  • building a Research & Development agenda for circular plastics;

  • establishing a transparent and reliable monitoring system to track all flows of plastic waste in the EU.
